[pct-l] Thru Hiker Sleeing Bags

Oh, I didn't mention: I was looking for the one that had something like
70"+ shoulder girth...(yeah, I want it all and I want it NOW...).

I mentioned to Ron that I liked the new tent, but then asked about a
bathtub floor....
I really WANT to put together an ultralight kit, but I just can't seem
to shake some of my lux habits...(the oilcan stays...)

Ok. I looked at the Western Mountaineering bags. Nice stuff! 14 oz for a
3-season bag!

What about the quilts? Light and all the girth I could ever want?

Try Western Mountaineering at www.westernmountaineering.com

The Highlite (40 degrees) weighs in at 19 oz. in the 6' 6" version.  It
certainly was not optimal for the High Sierra, but good enough for SoCal
and from Sierra City north.  I finished in Canada in late August, so I
didn't have to contend with cold or bad weather up north.  If I was to
do it again, I'd bring my Ultralight, which weighs in at 1 lb 15 oz in
the large size and is good to 20 degrees.  I'd probably start with it
and carry it until Sierra City, then switch into the Highlite for the
rest of the trip, possibly picking up the Ultralight again in Washington
if I was running late.  I have reviews of both bags at
http://whiteblaze.net.  Look in the Gear Reviews section.  The Highlite
review was written last year and so will be a bit buried, but the
Ultralight review I wrote recently.  The posts would be under the user
name of chris.
